Cheryl Cole is definitely out as a judge on the upcoming U.S. version of The X-Factor. But can the same now be said about the show's British counterpart?
According to The Daily Mail, producers offered the singer "an olive branch" and asked her to remain on the series that really made her famous. But Cole has refused all efforts.
"Cheryl will not be returning to the British X Factor," a source told the newspaper. "She hasn't returned phone calls. And you can't exactly negotiate with someone who won't even speak to you."
Cheryl Cole lost weight and dumped Derek Hough - but it still wasn't enough to keep her on The X-Factor.
So, who will be taking over for Cole? Kelly Rowland has reportedly been chosen to fill that spot on the judges' table.
The former Destiny's Child member will join Tulisa Contostavlos, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh on the British X-Factor.
